For the holiday homebody by Love Create Celebrate
Know someone who prefers a cozy night indoors? You can easily mix and match items to make a great gift basket. Lindi put in a stunning marble candle, two monochromatic mugs, a coffee carafe and soft Mongolian fur pillows. You can always add in some plush foam slippers and a faux mink throw blanket too! This idea is a great last minute gift for your significant other or a couples gift for an at home date night.

For their favourite teacher by The Sweetest Digs
Teachers always get the same couple of gifts like mugs or pricey gift cards. Change it up with the help of Gemma’s budget friendly teacher gift ideas. This idea is sure to show your kid’s teachers how grateful you are without breaking the bank. Gemma used the KSP silicone oven mitts, a gourmet hot chocolate pack and part of this pack of three OXO wooden spoons.

For your next-door neighbour (and Santa) by The Learner Observer
Avoid spending time running around a crowded mall, and bake them a thoughtful gift like cookies. Thalita and her kids baked some delicious cookies with this set of 3 KSP silicone cookie stamps.
Head over to the Learner Observer blog to see how she packaged them up with a simple brown paper bad and a fun ornament!
For your holiday guests by Harlow and Thistle
Planning a get together with friends and family can be very stressful. This gift is the perfect “take home dessert” because it takes a classic dessert in a jar to a WHOLE other level. Andrea made these buffalo plaid cakes with the help of our these mini mason jars. To wrap the gift up she added a star dessert fork, cheese cloth and twine.
